The first successful use of psychological profiling of killers in Alaska occurred when it allowed police to narrow their search for the
murderer of 5 Fairbanks-area women between 1979 and 1981.
Serving at Eielson Air Force Base in Fairbanks, Thomas Richard Bunday was not able to elude police for long. He had been transferred to
Wichita Falls, Texas, but an hour after a warrant for his arrest had been issued, he took the coward's way out and committed suicide by plowing his motorcycle
head-on into a truck.
